I am a 35 year old American from Shreveport LA. I have been involved over the internet with a lady who claims her name is Irina Smirnova, we have been talking since two weeks before Christmas of last year. She told me she was a cook, and her mum, (marina) and dad (andrey) lived with her, she sent many pictures, all with hardly any clothes on. Later in January she said she wanted to come here. She told me her aunt worked at an airport and could get her ticket cheep. She also told me that visa, and passport was 250.00 dollars so I sent money through Western Union,to a bank ALFA BANK IN OMSK RUSSIA, then later she asked for 750.00 dollars for plane ticket, to come here, then on the the 26 of Jan she said she could not come because she needed money for insurance to get on the plane. so I sent 300.00 Dollars. But when she wrote me last she told me my mum is now her mum and to meet her at the airport, she didnt show up. I AM IN CONTACT with the Russian Embassy and the US senators about this matter. Please dont let anyone else get hurt by this woman. When I told her I was black, she didnt reply to my letter, I also asked how after the third letter she knew my name - I dont remember writing that to her. I hope she is brought to justice.

I am a black male age 31 living in the United States. I placed a classified ad on the internet to see if I can meet someone because I had a hard time meeting a good woman. One day I received a response from a woman in Russia. She told me a little bit about herself, her family, and her career. I responded to her as I was interested in her. Over the past two months we would write to each other all the time exchanging more and more information about our lives. She seemed to have feel in love with me or I thought she did. I found it kind of unsual that she did seeing as though we never talked over the phone but I just thought maybe because where she comes from she was more concerned with a mans personality then what he looks like. Right around the first week of February she wrote me an email letter stating that her Aunt Olga has found a way to get her a visa in the same day and that she needed $299.00 USD to sent to here Via Western Union or we would miss this chance for her to come and be with me. I got really suspicious of her because out of the nowhere she would ask money from me and she would never answer any specific questions that I would email her. She was very detailed on how and when I should send the money but questions I would pose to her she would gave evasive type of answers. The place she told me to send the money is the same as the one posted on this site. It is: ROSBANK SPORTIVNY PROEZD 5A OMSK 644042 RU IRINA SMIRNOVA Also the pictures I have are the same as was sent to G.L.G with the same email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. I really thought this woman really cared about me but it broke my heart to find out that she was a scam artist. She is still sending me emails claiming that she loves me and cant live without me but I know that it is all a lie. I like to Thank You for having this site up. It really saved me from severe emotional pain and financial liability.
